The Department of Chemistry, Mizoram University was started in August 2006 with the aim of providing advanced Post Graduate (PG) and Ph.D. degree program in Chemistry. The specializations at PG level are being offered in various branches of chemistry viz., Physical, Inorganic, Organic and Analytical Chemistry. The courses are designed (Core Papers + Soft Courses + Open Electives) as Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) as per the suggestions of the UGC. Some of the courses offered (open electives) by the department are useful/interesting to students of other departments/schools as well, which they find as exciting and job-oriented in nature. The Department is supported by the DST-FIST at school level. The present intake of PG students is 25. Similarly, the Ph.D. program is offered in various disciplines of chemistry based on the research interests of existing faculties. A central instrumental facility, at the University, including the various advanced analytical instruments has been created and functional, for use by all departments of this university and other institutions of the region.
Currently, all possible efforts are being made to develop this department as a state-of-the-art facilities centre in chemical/physical sciences in the North-East region.
